Gigantic Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie (Vegan)

Gigantic Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie

How do you make a classic dessert, like a chocolate chip cookie, perfect for fall? You add pumpkin and make it a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie! This Gigantic Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie has all the best parts of a chocolate chip cookie with the added richness and festivity of pumpkin. Plus, it's giant, and who doesn't love a giant cookie? Bake it for a picnic or dinner party and split it between friends, or just save it all for yourself! It's THAT good!

I've been loving Inspired Organics nut butters, so I was excited to use their almond butter in this gigantic pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. It's creamy and just a little bit sweet from those almonds, but it sticks to simple ingredients: just dry roasted almonds! You can use their peanut butter for this recipe as well. I also used Inspired Organics maple syrup as a sweetener. Sourced from Vermont, this Grade A maple syrup is a beautiful amber color, and it's so good you can basically taste the beautiful fall foliage that blooms in New England. You only need a couple of tablespoons of oil for this recipe, but I still wanted mine to be high quality, so I whipped out Inspired Organics extra virgin olive oil. It works so well in this recipe, but I also love to make salad dressings with it or drizzle it over a plate of pasta!

Here's what you need for this Gigantic Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie: 

  • Pumpkin puree -- you can find this in the baking aisle of most grocery stores, just make sure the only ingredient is pumpkin!
  • Inspired Organics almond butter -- I haven't tested other options, but any mild nut butter would probably work here, like cashew butter
  • Flax egg -- made from just flaxseed meal and water!
  • Inspired Organics maple syrup
  • Inspired Organics olive oil -- any liquid oil is fine, like olive or avocado oil
  • Vanilla extract
  • Almond flour
  • Baking powder
  • Dark chocolate chips -- make sure they're dairy-free to keep this vegan! You can also add chocolate sprinkles as I did here.
  • Flaky sea salt
